Mainly docked around a table in the manner of a moored boat, Luca Nichetto’s Canal Chair is inspired by a historical type of ship that dominated the Mediterranean waterways for centuries. From Greece to the republic of Venice, galleys sailed away with powerful grace and precious cargoes, exchanging luxurious merchandise and chasing dreams of glory.
